Point Blank to Host a Track Deconstruction at Loop, Berlin 2017: You Decide the Track!

We are very excited to confirm that in November this year we will be hosting a masterclasses at Ableton’s flagship event, Loop 2017, in Berlin. Following the success of our collaborative sampling event earlier this year, our close working partnership with Ableton is set to continue at Loop. Point Blank course developer Ski Oakenfull will be hosting a track deconstruction, and this time we are asking you to submit your suggestions for the track! You can check out one of Ski’s previous deconstructions below to get a flavour of what to expect for the session.

We’ll be looking for a suggestion that represents the sound and vibe of Berlin, whether past or present. Head to the call out posts on Facebook and Twitter to get involved! Point Bank students and graduates are additionally able to apply for significantly discounted tickets to Loop, just contact before 3rd August with your study details to register your interest. Ableton’s Loop event brings three days of discussions, performances, presentations, studio sessions, installations and interactive workshops to Berlin, aimed at exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of music, creativity, and technology. Bringing together artists, technologists, educators and other creative thinkers, Loop is a collective exploration of what it is to make music today and what it could be tomorrow. Over the course of the event, you can expect to see workshops from the likes of Goldie, Flava D, LEAF Audio and more, as well as Point Blank’s own Ski Oakenfull. You can find out more about the full programme right here.
